        Cartes de Geographie Les plus Nouvelles et les plus Fideles

      Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1679. - Du VAL, Pierre (1619-1683). Cartes de Geographie Les plus Nouvelles et les plus fideles, Avecque leurs Divisions Regulieres, qui marquent les Bornes des Estats selon les derniers Traites de Paix. Paris: Chez l'Auteur, 1679. Folio (17 x 12 2/8 inches). Engraved "Introduction", "Alphabet et Definition des Termes", "Table Generale de Geographie", "Les Tables de Geographie reduites en un Jeu de Cartes" and two sheets of a games related to the German Empire (uncoloured), and one of place-names for Les Conciles; engraved allegorical title-page, fine double-page engraved double-hemisphere world map "Planisphere, ou Carte Generale de Monde", "Carte Universelle du Commerce", 1677 (Shirley 465, second state), and 89 double-page engraved maps, all with original hand-colour in outline. 19th-century tree sheep backed marbled paper boards, the spine in six compartments, with five raised bands, the second with maroon morocco lettering-piece, the others decorated with fine gilt tools (extremities a little scuffed, small abrasion to lower cover). Provenance: with 19th-century marginal manuscript scholarly annotations to L'Amerique autrement le Nouveau et Indes Occidentales Du Val's EXTREMELY RARE "Cartes Geographiques" (Pastoureau Duval II), was the only folio atlas published by him. It was initially a collection of du Val's own maps, with those of other authors, published in 1654, then 1665 and 1667. In 1677 du Val published a uniform collection of his grand four-part wall, and folio maps, with the allegorical frontispiece as here: an architectural border supporting two putti unveiling a large globe to a world of assorted grandees; beneath the pillared arch repose a gentleman traveller, a merchant with this bags of salt and pepper, a scientist illuminating his own hand, and a curious woman tending to her animals. The maps in this example of the "Cartes Geographiques" are EXCEPTIONALLY FINE, bright, clean and attractive examples, with original hand-colouring in outline, and include 2 world maps, double-hemisphere and on a Mercaor projection, 7 of his spectacular wall maps, 3 sheets of games, that seem to be the equivalent of our "Risk", and 89 detailed double-page maps, each detailed, but also beautiful for their elegant simplicity. Pierre du Val was the nephew of the celebrated French cartographer Nicolas Sanson d'Abbeville (1600-1667), mapmaker to Louis XIV, King of France, and responsible for sparking a renaissance in geographical endeavor in France, and laying the foundations for French domination in map production, initiating the so-called "French school of cartography," a school that was unprecedented in its attention to precision and scientific detail and which discarded much of the decorative embellishments of previous maps as irrelevant. Du Val adopted Sanson's geographical conceptions, confirming that the center of cartographic innovation had shifted from Holland to France. Du Val too was appointed to the position of ‘Geographe ordinaire’ to Louis XIV, and justifiably so. The maps include, in order: - World maps: Planisphere, ou Carte Generale de Monde (Duval II D), double-hemisphere world map, surrounded by diagrams showing compass points, winds and planetary orbits, a small terrestrial globe and an armillary sphere - Carte Universelle du Commerce, Carte Hidrographique, ou. Les Costes des 4 Parties du Monde, Avecque les Routes pour la Navigation des Indes, Occidentales et Orientales 1677 (Shirley 465, second state, first published in 1674), on Mercator’s projection showing the French and English routes to and from the East and West Indies, complete with galleons in full sail, the track of Le Maire across the Pacific, and an anonymous attempt to find a route to China and Japan through Hudson’s Bay in 1665. This map perpetuates the myth that California is an island, and displays some of the misunderstandings about the largely unexplored northwest coast of North America, such as the Straits of Anian. The lower half of the map is domina [Attributes: First Edition]

Anno 1679. - 1679 Important 2nd Oxford ed Holy BIBLE w/ Margins English O/N Testament Psalms An exceedingly rare Oxford Holy Bible! Printed in 1679, this complete English Bible was the second edition printed in Oxford, however, multiple version were printed from this edition. According to Darlow and Moule, three varieties occur. This particular printing was issued without the Apocrypha as well as the engraved New Testament title page. But, unlike the expected points mentioned in D&M, this issue includes marginal matter, which is atypical for editions lacking the Apocrypha. “This Bible is the earliest edition of the English bible which has dates added in the margins. Job is dated 2400, and the Nativity 4000, years after the Creation.” This edition also includes the Dedication on A1 as well as the list of books on the verso of that leaf. Verso of last page was printed with four tables ‘Kindred and Affinity,’ ‘Weights and Mesures,’ ‘Money,’ and ‘Time.’ This example was bound with a 1679 printing of the Whole Book of Psalms edited by Thomas Sternhold and John Hopkins. Oddly, D&M does not list this as part of the 1679 Oxford, however, multiple examples within the OCLC note The Whole Book of Psalms being printed with the complete Holy Bible.

        Recueil d'expériences et d'observations sur le combat qui procede du mélange des corps. Sur les saveurs, sur les odeurs, sur le sang, sur le lait, &c. Tres-curieux & utile aux medecins & à ceux qui s'appliquent à la recherche de la nature, des qualitez & des proprietez de toutes sortes de corps.

      Paris, Estienne Michallet, 1679. - Paris, Estienne Michallet, 1679 ; 1 vol. in-12 (16 x 9 cm), (15), 262, (2) pp., 1 planche h.t., pleine basane de l'époque, coiffes endommagées, mors fendus en tête, très petit manque de cuir sur le plat supérieur, une page de garde blanche manquante, quelques soulignements et accolades (au crayon rouge dans les deux premiers textes), assez bon état. Édition originale d'un ouvrage exceptionnel, devenue très rare et recherchée. Ce volume comporte la traduction française de trois ouvrages d'éminents scientifiques du 17ème siècle ; chaque texte a sa propre page de titre. Le premier, intitulé Expériences sur le combat qui arrive du mélange de diverses liqueurs avec toutes sortes de corps (pp. 1-124) est la traduction du principal ouvrage de Nehemiah Grew dans le domaine de la chimie. Le deuxième ouvrage, intitulé Expériences sur les saveurs et sur les odeurs (pp. 125-220) est la traduction de la première monographie consacrée à la physiologie d'organes des sens, oeuvre de Robert Boyle. Le dernier ouvrage, Observations faites avec le microscope sur le sang et sur le lait (pp. 221-262), est sans doute le plus intéressant : A MILESTONE IN THE HISTORY OF HEMATOLOGY. Il correspond à la traduction de cinq articles d'Anthony van Leeuwenhoek, publiés pour les quatre premiers d'entre eux dans les "Philosophical Transactions" de la "Royal Society". L'un de ces quatre articles (cf. Garrison & Morton, 860) comporte la première description valable des globules rouges. "Les globules rouges entrevus probablement par Swammerdam et Malpighi, sont vraiment découverts et remarquablement décrits par Leewenhoek." (J.Bernard). Leeuwenhoek montre aussi que les hématies se déforment pour pouvoir passer dans les capillaires. Ces observations constituent l'acte de naissance de l'hémorrhéologie. Le cinquième article, qui ne semble pas avoir été publié dans les Philosqophical Transactions et qui ne figure pas dans la liste des publications de l'auteur établie par Clifford Dobell, est peut-être publié ici pour la première fois. Leewenhoek y décrit en particulier la déformabilité et l'agglutination des hématies. Il faut aussi noter que ces cinq articles font partie des 27 premières lettres de l'auteur, qui n'ont pas été publiées dans ses oeuvres complètes.

        Corps de médecine et de chirurgie. Contenant la maniere de guerir toutes les maladies tant internes qu'externes par observations & exemples. Avec toutes les operations de chirurgie. Et les cures des tumeurs contre nature, des playes, des ulceres, des fractures & dislocations. Le tout extrait des plus célèbres praticiens, tant anciens que modernes. Par T.B. ** (Théophile Bonet) : Tome I : VAN HORN (Jean). Introduction méthodique à la chirurgie [suivi de:] SEVERIN (Marc-Aurèle). De la médecine efficace ou la manière de guerir les plus grandes & dangereuses maladies tant du dedans que du dehors, par le fer & par le feu. Tome II : FABRI DE HILDEN (Guillaume). Observations chirurgiques.

      Genève, Jean Anthoine Chouet, 1679 - 2 vol. pet. in-4 (22 x 17 cm); Tome I : (2) ff., (1 f. bl.), (12) ff., 21 planches, (1) f., (17) ff., (2), 654 pp. ; Tome II : (9) ff., 614 pp., (13) ff. ; pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, tranches jaspées ; quelques épidermures, rousseurs assez pâles éparses, quelques feuillets brunis, petit travail de vers marginal à quelques feuillets ; planches en bon état ; assez bon exemplaire. Première édition sous ce titre. REUNION de 2 CELEBRES TRAITÉS ILLUSTRÉS de CHIRURGIE du 17e siècle. Ces volumes ont été publiés séparément mais un titre commun leur a été donné : "Corps de médecine et de chirurgie". Haller indique, comme pour notre exemplaire, 2 volumes, mais 2 autres volumes, de bien moindre importance, ont été publiés ultérieurement. Ces 4 volumes ne se trouvent qu'exceptionnellement réunis dans cette première édition. C'est à Théophile Bonet (1620-1689), médecin de Genève, auteur du célèbre "Sepulchretum", que l'on attribue ces traductions. Le 1er tome renferme l'Introduction méthodique à la chirurgie par Jean VAN HORN (12 ff.) et le traité de Marc Aurele SEVERIN intitulé De la médecine efficace (614 pp.), avec une page de titre propre. C'est le seul ouvrage de Severino à avoir été traduit en français (cf. pour ses autres ouvrages Garrison & Morton, 289 et 2273). Cet ouvrage témoigne d'une grande érudition et fait appel à la grande expérience de l'auteur. Severin critique la molesse et la timidité des modernes et prône la cautérisation qui "arme en quelque sorte la médecine d'une main d'Hercule". Cet ouvrage de chirurgie est illustré de 4 planches gravées sur cuivre (représentant des instruments). Marc Aurèle Severin (1580-1656), originaire de Calabre, devint professeur d'anatomie de l'Académie Royale de Naples et chirurgien. Érudit et novateur, il fut le principal restaurateur de la chirurgie en Italie. Le 2ème tome renferme les célèbres "Observations chirurgiques de Guillaume FABRI DE HILDEN tirées de ses centuries, épitres, traitez de la dysenterie, gangrene, brûlures, & autres oeuvres. Ausquelles on a âjouté un Traitté de la Gangrene mis en lumière du vivant de l'autheur." Cet ouvrage rassemble la totalité des observations de l'auteur, publiée en latin en 1641. Wilhelm Fabricius Hildanus (1560-1624), né près de Cologne, exerça la chirurgie à Lausanne, à Payerne puis à Berne. Il a été considéré comme le restaurateur de la chirurgie allemande. Cet ouvrage constitue le meilleur recueil d'observations chirurgicales de cette époque. Celles-ci sont empreintes de sincérité et sont souvent très intéressantes. Elles renferment des descriptions d'instruments inventés par Fabrice (notamment un speculum pour le canal auditif, un instrument pour broyer les calculs vésicaux, un forceps oculaire pour l'ablation de l'oeil). On y trouve la première utilisation connue d'un aimant pour l'extraction d¿un corps étranger métallique intra-oculaire. Le traité de la gangrène et du sphacèle occupe les pages 565 à 614. Les 17 belles planches gravées sur cuivre, reliées par erreur dans le premier tome, avec celles de l'ouvrage de Severin, représentent les nombreux instruments inventés par l¿auteur et les traitements employés.

        Voyage de Francois Pyrard, de Laval, contenant sa navigation aux Indes orientales, Maldives Moluques et Brésil [.] Avec une description exacte des moeurs, loix, façons de faire [.] divisé en trois parties

      1679 - [10]-327-[1 bl.]-218-144-[21] À Paris, chez Louis Billaine, 1679, in-4, [10]-327-[1 bl.]-218-144-[21] pp, 1 carte dépliante, 3 parties en 1 volume [234 x 178 cm], veau granité de l'époque, armes centrales dorées sur les plats [La Rochefoucauld], roulettes sur les coiffes et sur les coupes, "Édition la plus complète que l'on ait donnée d'un de nos plus anciens voyageurs" (Chadenat). Édition en partie originale : la relation de ce long périple a connu trois éditions successivement augmentées en 1611, 1615 et 1619. Celle-ci, donnée par le géographe du roi Pierre Du Val, est une nouvelle fois corrigée, revue et augmentée, et agrémentée en outre d'une carte dressée par ce dernier, décrivant le périple de François Pyrard à travers les Indes, Sumatra, Java, les Îles Moluques, Malaca et le Cap de Bonne Espérance. Il s'agit du premier récit français sur les Indes du marchand François Pyrard (1578-1621), embarqué à St Malo en 1601. L'auteur fait naufrage aux Maldives et est retenu prisonnier cinq ans, avant de gagner la côte indienne et les comptoirs portugais. Là, il est à nouveau emprisonné par les Portugais qui le prennent pour un espion et qui l'expédient à Goa. Après un long séjour, il est libéré sous condition de son engagement dans l'armée. C'est ainsi qu'il sert dans diverses expéditions contre les Turcs et séjourne à Ceylan, Java et aux Îles Moluques. Embarqué finalement sur un navire faisant route vers l'Europe, les tempêtes détournent sa route sur São Salvador de Bahia, au Brésil, puis le mènent en Galice d'où il rejoint La Rochelle le 5 février 1611, après dix ans d'absence. De son séjour au Brésil, Pyrard évoque la cité de Bahia, décrit le funiculaire, la pêche à la baleine, la contrebande, le commerce officiel et illicite, etc. La narration est suivie d'un Traité et description des animaux, arbres et fruicts des Indes orientales. Exemplaire aux armes de François VIII, duc de La Rochefoucauld et de La Roche-Guyon (1663-1679), petit fils de l'auteur des Maximes : "burelé d'argent et d'azur, à trois chevrons de gueules brochants, le premier écimé" (OHR, pl. 709, fer n° 1). Estampille de la bibliothèque La Rochefoucauld au château de La Roche-Guyon, très effacée, sur le titre. Ex-libris manuscrit sur le premier contreplat (Dubuisson), suivi de la date de 1682. Bel exemplaire, de provenance intéressante, à grandes marges et bien conservé dans sa reliure d'époque. Quelques restaurations anciennes de papier (carte renforcée au verso). Chadenat I, 673. Sabin 66882 ; Brunet III, 880-881 ; Borba de Moraes II, 694 ; Penrose, Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance, pages 220-21. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        1679 Oxford Bible Book of Common Prayer Church of England Anglican FIRE LONDON

      Oxford : Printed at the Theater, 1679. - 1679 Oxford Bible Book of Common Prayer Church of England Anglican FIRE LONDON A VERY rare and desirable 17th-century ‘Book of Common Prayer’ published by Barker. This popular devotional and supplement to the Bible was a critical part of the early English Church liturgy and doctrine. This edition features the Book of Psalms. ESTC records only 14 copies of this edition worldwide (of which only 5 in the US). This 1679 edition of the Book of Common Prayer is thought to be the first edition to include ‘A Form of Prayer” This "Form of Prayer" was printed separately (ESTC R38742) in London in 1666 by John Bill and Christopher Barker, but apparently not included in The Book of Common Prayer until this 1679 Oxford edition. A copy of this edition was listed in the Catalogue of Libr. of George Offor comprising Rare Early Versions of the Holy Scriptures (no. 949) with a note: "Including the very rare 'Forms of Prayer to be used yearly on the second of September, for the dreadful Fire of London'." Also included at the end are "Forms of Prayer to be used at Sea," "A form of Prayer with Thanksgiving to be used yearly upon the Fifth day of November for the happy deliverance of the King and the three Estates of the Realm from the most Traiterous and Bloody intended Massacre by Gun-powder", "A Form of Common Prayer, to be used yearly upon the 30 day of January, being the day of the Martyrdom of King Charles the First," and and "A Form of Prayer with Thanksgiving to be used yearly on the 29th day of May; Being the day of His Majesties [king Charles II's] Birth, and happy Return to His Kingdoms".

This 1679 edition also appears to have been unknown to Francis Procter, who in his A History of the Book of Common Prayer (p.170) mentions only Oxford editions of 1681-3: "'A Form of Prayer, to he used yearly on the second of September, for the Dreadful Fire of London,' appears in some Prayer Books printed at Oxford (1681 - 1683), and in Parsell's Latin Prayer Book. It is the usual office for Holydays, with a versicular Hymn instead of Venite; a portion of the Commination Service after the Litany, with an additional Prayer; and a Prayer to be 'used continually so long as the navy is abroad.' A note to the Litany directs it to be 'used publicly in churches, not only upon the monthly Fast-day, but on Wednesday in every week (and may by every man be used daily in private Families), during the time of this Visitation." "In the time of Charles II, a special service was appointed to be used on the 2nd of September, the anniversary of the day, on which the great fire of London commenced in 1666. It may have continued in use in the succeeding reign, though whether such were the case we cannot determine. However, at the end of some of the Prayer Books of the time of Charles II. a special service for the occasion may still be found under the following title:—"Forms of Prayer to be used yearly on the Second of September, for the dreadful fire of London." Its observance was also enjoined by Act of Parliament as a day of fasting and humiliation for ever, to deprecate the wrath of God from the nation, and from the city of London in particular. The service in question was, we believe, authorized in the usual way, but we are unable to ascertain when its use was discontinued. Photos available upon request.

        WITH CONTRIBUTIONS BY SHAKESPEARE: Fifty comedies and tragedies. Written by Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher, Gentlemen. All in one volume. Published by the authors original copies, the songs to each play being added.

      London: Printed by J. Macock [and H. Hills], for John Martyn, Henry Herringman, Richard Marriot 1679 - First edition thus; folio; [10], 280, 279-578, 557, [1]pp. In contemporary full mottled calf (a little worn), sometime recased retaining original spine over six raised spine bands with gilt lettered red leather title label to second compartment. Neat early ink ownership name to top corner of title page, very occasional unobtrusive spots and browning but overall an exceptionally fresh copy complete with Marshall's frontispiece portrait of Fletcher. The first collection of Beaumont and Fletcher's plays appeared in 1647; this subsequent 1679 edition contained another 18 plays including The Two Noble Kinsmen, substantial parts of which modern scholarship has concluded to be the work of Shakespeare, with the rest by John Fletcher. (The consensus is that Shakespeare wrote Act I, scenes 1-3, Act II, scene 1; Act III, scene 1; Act V, scene 1, lines 34-173, and scenes 3 and 4). The play was omitted from Shakespeare's First and subsequent folios, was first printed as a quarto in 1634, with its next appearance in this 1679 collection. A very attractive copy.

Vermutlich zweite Ausgabe der erstmals 1676 erschienenen Dissertation zur Verteidigung von Lanas Luftschiffprojekt. - "Vor allem aber kämpfte Professor Philipp Lohmeier aus Rinteln für Lanas Flugprojekt. Die Bewunderung für Lanas Idee verführte ihn sogar dazu, an der Universität Wittenberg im Jahre 1674 Vorträge über sie zu halten, ohne dabei Lanas Namen zu nennen. Durch einen seiner Schüler namens Frescheur ließ er eine Dissertation 'De artificio navigandi per aerem' verfassen, die sich fast wörtlich mit dem 6. Kapitel von Lanas 'Prodromo' deckt und nur einige erweiternde Vorschläge hinzufügt. Auch in ihr wurde Lana mit keinem Wort erwähnt, so daß Lohmeier später irrtümlicherweise selbst für den Erfinder gehalten wurde." (Supf, Buch der dt. Fluggeschichte). - Vereinzelt gering fleckig. Das letzte Blatt mit kleinen Wurmlöchern, sonst gut erhalten. - Liebmann-Wahl 943; vgl. Poggendorff I, 1491; VD17 12:190773V; Sammlung Oberst von Brug 115 (nur die Ausgabe 1676); nicht bei Brockett und Darmon

Very good copy. FIRST EDITION OF THE MOST EXPRESSIVE AND VISUALLY INTERESTING OF ALL WORKS ABOUT THE LORE RELATING TO THE TOWER OF BABEL, ADDING TO THIS ASSESSMENTS OF CERTAIN WONDERS OF THE WORLD, AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE STUDY OF LANGUAGES, ESPECIALLY OF EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHICS, AND ALSO RELATING THE TEXT TO THE BIBLICAL STORY OF THE INABILITY OF PEOPLE TO COMMUNICATE TOGETHER. Here is Kircher's encyclopedic work on the history of the construction of the Tower of Babel, his speculations regarding its height, location, etc. Much of the topographical and historical information was garnered from the author's studies and research in earlier texts. Included is the genealogical tree of Noah and his descendants. He also enters into a study of the comparison of languages, including Phoenician, Hebrew, Chaldean, Syriac, Arabic, Ethiopian, Elamite, Persian, Coptic, Armenian, Greek, and Latin. "In Kircher's Turris Babel, his reconstruction of the confusion of languages following Nimrod's act of architectural arrogance, he put forward a series of theories attempting to explain language change. These include migration, wars, colonization, and climate. Language change was generally viewed as a form of decline from the original and perfect language of Adams, which Kircher considered to be lost forever. Against this natural decline, humanist philological authority institutionalized its prescriptive claims to regulate language norms by establishing bodies such as the Accademia della Crusca and the Academie Française. Kircher's cure for the curse of Baroque Babel was at once more radical and knowingly impractical. By creating a new, written language, he offered to stop language change forever â€" to wrench language from history (and use) and give it to philosophy." â€" Wilding, p. 101.

Initials of "CK" at foot of both the half-title and title-page [minutely written]. Leonard Frederick Raaf [or Leonhard Fredrik Raaf] in SmÃ¥land (1786-1872), born 18 September 1786 on the farm Tomestorp in Kisa parish, Ostergotland, died 9 June 1872 on Forsnas farm in Sund parish, Ostergotland County, was a Swedish writer, folklore collector, antiquarian, member of parliament, landowner and state auditor. He was taught at home and at the age of 16 he matriculated to Uppsala University, graduating in 1805. During his student years in Uppsala, he came in contact with representatives of Romanticism, such as Per Daniel Amadeus Atterbom.

        Prodromo gentilizio ovvero trattato delle armi ed insegne delle famiglie, preliminare alla Europa gentilizia

      a spese del Tinassi. Cm. 15,5, pp. (24) 560 (4) [prima carta (anteposta all'occhitetto) e ultima (postposta alla carta di errata) bianche e presenti]. Stupenda legatura coeva alle armi della famiglia Febei, in pieno marocchino rosso con ricchissime decorazioni in oro a dorso e piatti. Tagli dorati. Si segnala lo splendido cofanetto in marocchino rosso (interni in velluto e finestra in plastica simil-vetro trasparente) realizzato dalla prestigiosa legatoria milanese De Stefanis. Trascurabili e sporadiche arrosatture, peraltro magnifico esemplare ottimamente conservato. Antonio Stefano Cartari (1651-), giurista e poligrafo nativo di Orvieto, raggiunse la massima fama grazie agli studi di araldica. Così la voce C. (a cura di Amando Petrucci in D.B.I., volume 20) a proposito di quest'opera: "Egli individuò nell'araldica e nella sigillografia i campi di interesse che gli riuscivano più congeniali, e prese a raccogliere sia sigilli originali, sia impronte, sia infine descrizioni o disegni di stemmi di famiglie nobili. Nacque così in lui il progetto, vastissimo ed ambizioso, di un repertorio generale degli stemmi di tutte le famiglie nobili europee, disegnati e descritti accuratamente; e in pochi anni il C., con accanita opera di spoglio da fonti e da testi di ogni tipo, finì per raccogliere la riproduzione di oltre ventimila stemmi. Nel 1679 egli pubblicò il volume primo e preliminare della grande opera: Prodromo gentilizio overo trattato delle armi ed insegna delle famiglie, Roma 1679, dedicato a F. M. Febei, che consiste in un vero trattato teorico-pratico di araldica, preciso e conciso nella parte tecnica, basata, per confessione dell'autore, su fonti francesi, inattendibile e abborracciato nelle parti storiche; importante appare il glossario dei termini tecnici, nonché l'indicazione di metodo volta a privilegiare le fonti antiquarie, «monete, sigilli e medaglie» in confronto di quelle scritte". Copia unica, in quanto esemplare di dedica: le armi sono di Francesco Maria Febei (1616-1680), arcivescovo di Tarso e scrittore originario di un'antica famiglia ascritta al patriziato di Orvieto. Lo stesso Febei è il destinatario della dedicatoria di Cartari. Prima edizione. Così Piantanida (260): "Rara ediz. probab. orig. di questo trattato diviso in cinque libri (Spreti, Saggio di Bibliogr. araldica, p. 36)". Cfr. anche Iccu..

        Del suono de' tremori armonici e dell'udito. Trattati

      a spese di Nicolò Angelo Tinassi, 1679. Cm. 20, pp. (16) 330 (2). Con numerose ill. xilografiche n.t.; bei finalini e graziosi capilettera. Legatura coeva in pergamena rigida; tagli spruzzati. Abile restauro al dorso. Esemplare fresco e ben conservato. Daniello Bartoli (1608-1685), storiografo dell'ordine dei Gesuiti nativo di Ferrara, si dedicò con autorevolezza anche agli studi scientifici e matematici. In questo importante trattato dedicato ai meccanismi di trasmissione del suono in natura e in musica, l'A. descrive i fenomeni fisici e gli aspetti psicologici legati alla percezione delle diverse tipologie di suono, donando per la prima volta alla musica il ruolo di scienza fisica autonoma e non subalterna alla matematica e alla geometria. L'opera è suddivisa in quattro distinti trattati: "Del somigliante diffondersi che fanno in certi lor movimenti l'aria e l'acqua"; "De' movimenti del suono"; "Del tremore armonico"; "Delle misture de' suoni". Rarissima prima edizione. Cfr. Iccu; Wellcome, II, p. 109; Gamba, 1775; Olschki, Choix, 6068..

        Nouvelle relation de l'interieur du Serail du Grand Seigneur). Recueil de plusieurs relations et traitez singuliers & curieux.

      [Amsterdam], suivant la copie imprimée à Paris, 1679. - Small 8vo. (8), 564, (4) pp. With 2 folding engr. maps and 8 folding engr. plates; several woodcuts in the text. Wants the portrait found in some copies. Contemp. dark brown full calf with traces of oxydized giltstamping to spine and gilt leading edges. First Amsterdam reprint: Taviernier's description of the Ottoman Imperial Seraglio - his first published work, which had appeared separately as early as 1675 - here forms the final part of his "Recueil de plusieurs relations et traitez singuliers & curieux", an independent publication which was, from 1679 onwards, appended to the author's "Six voyages en Turquie, en Perse, et aux Indes" (thus ultimately forming that collection's third and final volume). It was this volume, containing Tavernier's studies in commercial politics, that made the author's travels widely known. The fine maps show Japan and Tonquin, the plates depict costumes, a theatre performance, temples, and various processions. A woodcut in the Seraglio section gives the Islamic profession of faith, the Shahada, in Arabic script. "Tavernier spent eleven months in Constantinople before setting out on his first journey. He joined a caravan for Persia in 1638 and, between 1643 and 1668, made six voyages to Persia, India, the East Indies and Japan. During his travels he amassed a large collection of diamonds and jewels. His successful commercial enterprise was recognised by Louis XIV and he was granted a patent of nobility for his contribution to the establishment of French trade in Asia. It was Tavernier who indicated the trade routes to the East and made it possible for others to follow him. According to Brunet, the 'Recueil' appears with all editions of the 'Six Voyages' printed after 1679" (Atabey). "It appears that much of his information on the Seraglio was obtained from two former employees of the Sultan, one a Frenchman, the other an Italian" (Blackmer). - Binding rubbed but tight; a tear to one map repaired. Slight browning throughout due to paper. A good copy. Graesse VI/2, 43. Goldsmiths 2283. Willems 1937. Atabey 1201. Cf. Cordier, BJ 393. Laures 525. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Terra Sancta sive Promissionis, olim Paletina, induo divisa regna, Israel, et Juda.

      Artist: Cantelli da Vignola Giacomo (d) ; issued in: Rome; date: (d)1679 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restoration at centerfold; - size (in cm): 42 x 54; - description: Map shows Holly Land with a insert map showing Israel with Syria and Cyprus; - vita of the artist: Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola (1643 - 1695) was an important Italian cartographer and engraver Cantelli was born in Montorsello, near Vignola Italy to a prominent local family. After studying literature at the University of Bologna, Cantelli took a position as secretary to the Marquis Obizzi de Ferrara. Eventually Cantelli relocated to Venice where developed an interest in cartography. He later traveled to Paris in the company of the French ambassador where became acquainted with the French cartographer Guillaume Sanson, as well as his contemporaries Jacques-Andre Duval and Michel-Antoin Baudrand. It was most likely the influence of these innovative French cartographers that inspired Cantelli's careful and meticulous approach, in which he based his cartography not just on earlier maps, but also very much in the French style upon accounts written by travelers and merchants regarding actual travel to foreign lands. Back in Italy, Cantelli took service Count Rinieri Marescotti, with whom he traveled extensively throughout Italy, becoming in the process acquainted with the Italian publisher Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. It is with Rossi that Cantelli began officially publishing his maps. The earliest maps to bear the Cantelli-Rossi imprint date to 1672 and detail the Holy Land, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Around 1680 the duo also began to publish the Mercurio Geografico, a large format atlas illustrating all parts of the world in a splendid Italian baroque detail defined by elaborate finely engraved cartouche work, high quality paper, and bold Roman lettering, and dark rich inks. Some have compared his style go that of Giovanni Antonio Magini, another Italian cartographer of the previous generation. Cantelli da Vignola in fact pioneered the Italian style of fine bold engraving that would eventually be embraced and expanded upon by Vincenzo Coronelli. His work drew the attention of Pope Innocent XI and Reggio Francesco II d'Este, the Duke of Modena, both of whom offered him a position as court geographer. Cantelli chose to work with the Due of Modena, in the service of whom he produced numerous maps and well as two large globes.

        DE PAR LE ROY. EXTRAIT DES REGISTRES DU CONSEIL D'ESTAT.

      [Paris. ]. 1679 - Broadside, 48 x 35.5 cm. Folded, large dampstain affecting top and bottom, else very good. This broadside is signed in print: "Saint Germain en Lay, 24 Oct. 1679.Colbert." One of the chronic problems faced by France was a shortage of shipping, which put the country at a disadvantage in dealing with the maritime powers of her neighbors, England and the Netherlands. To correct this, Colbert instructs (translated from the French): "In order to encourage his subjects in navigation and maritime commerce, the king decrees that anyone who builds a boat in the ports and harbors of the kingdom of more than 100 tons capacity will receive 100 sols per ton." There are instructions for the broadside to be posted at docks and mercantile exchanges so that no one can claim ignorance. Not in the NUC.

Small typographical vignette on title page. Woodcut headpiece and initial on p. 3. Other woodcut initials. Typographical headpieces. Woodcut tailpiece on p. 210. Large woodcut tailpiece on p. 230. Minor worming in lower inner margin of first 56 leaves, never affecting text. Some soiling to outer corners of first 4 leaves. In good condition. Old ink inscription on verso of front free endleaf: "18-1". Bookplate of Victor Avila Perez. 230 pp., (4 ll. licenses, final errata l.). Page 211 wrongly numbered 212; p. 214 wrongly numbered 114; leaf Oiii wrongly signed Oii. *** FIRST EDITION, rare. There appears to be an earlier issue, very rare, with the title page dated 1678. A second edition appeared a century later, in 1769. Along with his Vocabulário Portuguez e Latino, Bluteau is known for the present work, an instruction manual for mulberry-tree cultivation and silk manufacture. It was the first such work in the Portuguese language and one of the earliest in any language. Bluteau echoed the mercantilist views of Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo. Ribeiro de Macedo and Bluteau were protégées of D. Luís de Meneses, 3.º Conde de Ericeira (1632-1690), who made a valiant attempt to revive the Portuguese economy during the reigns of D. Afonso VI and D. Pedro II. Pages 72-4 contain a brief bibliography, or index, to the principle authors who had written on this subject. It is brief due to the dearth of previously published material.Quire C*, containing the 4 unnumbered license leaves, is usually bound following leaf C1, between pp. 34 and 35. Here the first 2 unnumbered leaves are bound after leaf P1, between pp. 226 and 227, while the next 2 unnumbered leaves are bound at the end, just prior to the errata leaf.Born of French parents in London, Rafael Bluteau (1638-1734) spent over fifty years in Portugal, including his late childhood and adolescence, and died in Lisbon. He became fluent in Portuguese, and is best known for his ten volume Vocabulário Portuguez e Latino. In effect it is the first Portuguese lexicon, and remains of immense influence today. Bluteau passed from England to France, from France to Portugal, from Portugal to Italy, and more: he could also speak and write in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Latin and Greek. He served on a diplomatic mission to Italy under Duarte Ribeiro de Macedo. When Ribeiro de Macedo died along the way, Bluteau became chief of the mission. A favorite of Queen D. Maria Francisca Isabel of Savoy (wife of D. Afonso VI) and then of his brother D. Pedro II, Bluteau participated in the "Conferencias discretas e eruditas" of the third Conde da EriceiraHe later also became close to Ericeira's son, the fourth Conde. Bluteau participated in diverse literary Academies favored and sponsored by the Ericeiras, such as the Generosos, Aplicados, etc., and was nominated to the Real Academia de História by the king himself.Provenance: The library of Victor Marat d'Avila Perez was one of the most important ever sold at auction in Portugal.

Finalement elle n'accoucha pas, et eut de violentes douleurs deux mois après le terme puis continua à ressentir une gêne, parfois des douleurs, jusqu'à son décès à l'âge de 62 ans. Certains attribuèrent cette histoire clinique extraordinaire à une malédiction démoniaque, et l'autopsie de cette patiente suscita un grand émoi. Elle révéla, hors de la matrice, la présence "d'un corps dur comme de la pierre", semi-mobile, solidaire de l'épiploon et qui "fermoit un grand ulcère qui occupoit le fond de la matrice". Ce corps se révéla être un foetus mâle calcifié. Blegny évoque une rupture utérine au cours du travail. De longues discussions à ce sujet eurent lieu au cours des siècles suivants. Ce lithopédion fut finalement associé à une grossesse abdominale liée à une brèche utérine. ¶ Stofft H : Un lithopédion en 1678, Hist. des Sc. Médicales, 1986, 20, p. 267-285 : "Francois Bayle's observation of a lithopaedion, published in 1678, has given rise to discussions in the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, allowing us to follow the evolution of medical opinion on the physiology of human reproduction, the pathological anatomy, the aetiology, the pathogenesis and the surgery of abdominal pregnancies." - Dezeimeris I. p.416 "Le foetus, sorti de l'utérus par une rupture de cet organe près de l'insertion d'une des trompes, était contenu dans l'abdomen, et comme pétrifié." - Caillet n° 856 (Bayle).
